Cleansing milks have a similar formulation to creams but with a much higher proportion of water and a little detergent added. They are not always as efficient as creams for dissolving makeup but they do have some benefits:
- Easier than creams to wipe off the skin,
- Some can be worked up into a lather with water to wash the face,
- Ones with a higher oil content will effectively remove light makeup.
Their detergent action makes them suitable for younger, greasier skin but ladies with a dry or mature skin should only use cleansing milks with a high oil content. It is applied either directly to the skin with clean, damp cotton pads firmly but gently over the face and neck in upward and outward movements or with clean fingers in small, gentle circular movements, working well into the creases of the skin.Tweet
The surface of a greasy skin type appears shiny, thick, coarse, dull and often grimy. This is due to the skin producing more sebum than is needed to give the normal amount of lubrication and protection. Together with the extra ‘fatty content’ the skin has a dull, sallow (yellowish) appearance. Depending on how the skin is cared for, the enlarged pores may be open or blocked. Open pores allow bacteria to enter causing spots and infections. Blocked pores often result in blackheads.Tweet
